“I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election,” Trump said in a statement on Monday. “I have spent the past several months unofficially campaigning and recognize that running for public office cannot be done half heartedly. Ultimately, however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector.”
What he’s saying is that although he believes he would win, that people want him in office, and that he obviously thinks the nation would benefit from his leadership, he will not run for president due to flatly selfish reasons. It doesn’t benefit enough personally for him to want to run.
That’s Trumplestiltskin for ya.
